2007 East End homicides

December 31, 2007 8:15 am by

According to the RPD’s Crime Incident Information site, there were 16 homicides in the 1st Precinct in 2007. This is down from 30 homicides in 2006 and 32 homicides in 2005.

Two things really jump out: Except for the 2 incidents in Fulton and the year-end double shooting on 24th Street, every other homicide in the East End in 2007 was associated with public housing, either Fairfield, Creighton, or Whitcomb. Across Church Hill, Chimborazo, Union Hill, Fulton Bottom, and even Mosby Court, there were no killings. Also, the police were incredibly quick in making arrests for a number of these incidents. In the last 2, on 24th Street and Jennie Scher, suspects were picked up in the 24 hours immediately after the crime.

The map below indicates all of the homicides in the 1st Precinct in 2007. The view is one step zoomed out from the regular CHPN crime map.
